Portfolium is an academic portfolio network, allowing your students to showcase their work, projects and experiences well beyond the limits of a traditional resume and transcript, proving the true value of their education and future potential.
We ask that you encourage your students to begin building their own Portfolium accounts to document their progress and learning throughout their journey. To make the most out of this innovative tool, students will need to make a habit of uploading artifacts from their academic and professional experiences--both inside and outside of the classroom.

3 reasons why every student should have a Portfolium:
YOUR STUDENTS ARE DOING AMAZING THINGS - WE WANT THEM TO BE RECOGNIZED FOR IT
Unlike other e-portfolio solutions, Portfolium is focused on the college to career transition, allowing students to visually tell their academic and professional stories with digital content they’ve created. Portfolium provides the ability to upload coursework, reports, projects, extracurriculars, volunteer activities, internships, and professional experiences. Real work samples such as papers, presentations, photos, videos, and much more can be directly imported and showcased to prove their skills and potential!

Can I sync my LinkedIn account to Portfolium?
Yes, you can link your LinkedIn account to your Portfolium in the Settings section. This will not pull in all of your LinkedIn information due to LinkedIn's new API restrictions (http://techcrunch.com/2015/02/12/linkedin-battens-down-the-hatches-on-api-use-limiting-full-access-to-partners/). =[ However, it does make logging in easier, as you can click just the one LinkedIn button to login to your Portfolium account (no need to remember a new password). You can also add the LinkedIn icon/link to your profile here: (https://portfolium.com/settings/profile).
Can I connect with classmates and friends?
Yes, you can request to connect with classmates and they can accept from their email. Connecting means you can message privately and stay up to date with their projects and work.
Why should I connect with faculty and fellow students?
Connections are a great way to network and cast a wider net for opportunities. It also allows these people to stay up to date with your work and projects moving forward.
Can I tag my teammates on group projects?
Yes, tagging teammates on group projects is a great way to give them credit for their hard work. They can always untag themselves for any reason. Employers value teamwork and seeing entries in your portfolio with others tagged is direct proof of your ability to work with others within a team.
